The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams, Illustrations by William Nicholson
There are some stories that once read, remain with us for always. They remind us of something so important, something that will change us if we let them. This is such a story.
Come with me on this journey. I'm holding in my hands the copy given to my daughter when she was a wee thing...a perfect replica of the copy I once had. Step back to the moment when someone read this to you for the first time.
"By the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby."
Don't we all wish for this kind of love, a love so great, so pure that it consumes you and you hardly care?
"But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
...a love so unconditional that it doesn't matter at all how you look, because you are Real inside - and that is all that matters.
